    Hey all,

    I have spent a lot of time the past day trying to wrap my head around whether these specific rims will fit my truck, and I kind of understand the measurements and offsets, but not nearly enough to make a purchase without being certain. Curious if anyone could answer the following for me:

    I have a 2002 2.7L ext cab 4WD. I am curious if the Pro Comp Series 51 in the following size will fit? Will I need spacers or anything like that?
    link to the wheels is below... thanks so much!!

    Stock backspace is about 4.6. Doesn't seem like much but might run into issues with that 4.2.

    Have no idea if spacers would work or not, I prefer to stay away from them.

    Probably not what you were looking for, sorry. Welcome to TacomaWorld.

    Okay- seems like after some additional research that they won’t fit as is. Curious if 1.25” huncentric spacers would take care of that?

    Not sure if this helps but I just installed a set of 15x7s on my Taco with 4" backspacing and I had to take maybe a 1/16" off the caliper.

    Dang- i love the look of that. Have the more aggressive tires changed your MPG much?

    I haven't had them on there for 48 hours yet

    But I don't expect them to change MPG too much if any
